Some Customers Run Their Mouth, Some Managers Break Them

, , , , | Right | October 16, 2020

My manager is working retail while also attending college.

Customer: “Can I get a discount on [brand of jeans]?”

Me: “Sir, we don’t do brand-related discounts. Sometimes the manufacturers will have special offers on certain brands, but our store doesn’t do that.”

Customer: “I’d like to speak with a manager. You’re just a dumb loser.”

I ignore the jibe and page for my manager.

Me: “The manager is on his way, sir.”

Thirty seconds later, my manager approaches. The customer turns pale and sprints out of the store.

Manager: “We were on the boxing team together in high school. I broke his jaw once while we were sparring in practice.”
